Very detailed plan

I used this plan for my first A5. The instrument looked and sounded superb. The most difficult part was the neck joint - it is very, very tricky to hand craft as per the plan. I revised the design of the joint for my later instruments.

One could hardly ask for more from a plan marketed at this price. For those not using the pre-formed kit parts accurately cutting the dovetail neck joint to fit the curved surface of the the body will be a head-scratcher. An alternative neck joint might make things easier.
